This procedure is based on the configuration described in Simple Configuration. If you are planning a different configuration, you must configure the BEA WebLogic Server accordingly.
Follow the BEA WebLogic Server documentation to install the BEA WebLogic Server on the global filesystem or a failover filesystem.
Follow the BEA WebLogic Server Administration Guide to configure the WebLogic Domain.
Enter the logical hostname or its IP address when configuring the BEA WebLogic Servers.
After completing all necessary configuration for the domain, shut down the Administration Server.
Edit the Administration Server START script and the Managed Server START script setting the WLS_USER and WLS_PW.
The START scripts should be able to run without any arguments.
The WLS_USER and WLS_PW are required by the agent to do a smooth shutdown of the BEA WebLogic Server. If this is a security issue, you can set these properties in the boot.properties file. However, the smooth shutdown will not be possible and the agent will do a force shutdown of the BEA WebLogic Server.
In the Managed Server START script, set the ADMIN_URL and the SERVER_NAME variables.
This script should be able to run without any arguments.
Set the necessary environment variables in the setWLSEnv.sh or the startWLS.sh scripts.
These environment variables include any additional CLASSPATH or LD_LIBRARY_PATH, etc. These scripts contain all necessary environmental variables such as CLASSPATH and LD_LIBRARY_PATH.
Verify that the config.xml file is in the same directory as the START scripts.
